A slice-of-life dark comedy about Betty, a lonely female security guard working at a deteriorating strip mall. Isolated and friendless, a glimmer of hope appears when a charming make-up salesman shows Betty kindness, leading to an unexpected sexual encounter.
"Wong’s deft script and sure-handed direction means that even as these characters spiral, we never blame one or the other. It’s a unique approach to storytelling and character building, and it signals Wong as a major talent to watch." - LA TIMES
"Wexford Plaza is a quirky and off beat comedy that manages to balance a critique of mundane suburban culture with poetic beauty. With a well rounded portrayal of gender, race and sexuality, director and writer Joyce Wong shows off her craft as an impressive storyteller with this nuanced, witty and moving film."
